Noun. 1. The little metal piece situated in the middle of the spinning wheel on a lighter that people mistakenly refer to as "that child safety thing." 2. The piece that is usually removed by dedicated smokers to facilitate the use of the lighter, which adds to the thumb's grip and uses less pressure to spin the wheel and create a flame.

Can usually be removed using a knife, key, fork, tweezers, or any other thin metal tool.
"Why haven't you taken the sprandit off of this lighter yet? You know I'm drunk."

"I always take the sprandits off of my BIC with a fork. But yesterday I used a pocket knife."
